Boot Season 2021

Recommended Posts

Fall season preorders have started, and Nine West have their lineup of boots on their website!

Lug soled ankle boots seem to be the rage this season, but this pair of patent cherry OTKs has caught my eye

I’ll have to check what Louboutin’s offerings this year look like later.

 

Does anyone want to share what they’re looking forward to?

I purchased several pairs of boots and booties in December 2019 and haven't really had the opportunity to wear them (to work) or enjoy them in general.   However, I am looking for one more knee high boot.  I need a full zipper and I have yet to find a knee high boot this season with a full zipper.  Hoping that Jessica Simpson brings out a full zipper knee high like they did in 2019.

Steve Madden has an interesting thigh boot in a good range of sizes and colors.

Also, for some reason, I find myself lusting after a 90s style chunky platform boot like this, except it doesn't come in my size 12.

For me, the trouble with the Steve Madden boots are they are only half-zippered.

@alphax you should also look at the Jessica Simpson boots. Currently they too are only half-zipped, but in the pass they have been full-zipped.

I got two pairs of leather Nine West knee highs last year with full zippers, black pair and a red pair,

@Cali I like half zippered thigh boots because my thighs rub against each other. TMI?

To a lesser extent, my knees too.

p.s. I pulled the trigger on the Nine West cherry patent OTKs. *buries my head in shame* I have no self control.

Is that the Sizzle?

I need the full zipper to get my feet in.  My ankles have a large girth, so making them bend in half zippers boots just doesn't work.  It too much work to get the heels on and then a lot more to get them off.   You have no self control, I have even less.  I just hoping to be more selective.

It's funny how they recycle names. I have a pair of NW oxfords from 10 years ago called "Sizzle." They have been, to date, my most durable shoes, even if they have a dumb name.

Yes, that was it.

I find myself liking Jeffrey Campbell's designs the more I look at them. 

Great selection in my size 12, and a few up to size 15 too.

I think that I may have missed their Fall boot drop though, so many of the best color and design combos are sold out in my size.

Definitely worth keeping an eye out on their email flyers though.

 

edit:

These KISS themed boots are amazing

So I was checking Jeffrey Campbell's website.

What I really wanted his The Band model, but that only goes up to 11, but I noticed the Dauphin model in black was back in stock today, and in my size 12!

So trigger pulled. I hope this quells my lust for chunky boots this season.

In this season’s quest for a new pair of chunky boots, I noticed that Steve Madden has a high heeled model of ankle boot for men

That, and the glamor shot for Jeffrey Campbell’s Dauphin boot is a Freddy Mercury lookalike.

Are designers finally recognizing that cismales buy high heels too?
